I am an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) originally from Ohio, although I’ve lived in Pittsburgh for 7 years. My work for the last 10 years has focused on women’s health, both in a hospital setting as well as in outpatient clinics. My role within the group is as a part-time clinician – the rest of the time I am kept on my toes by my curious, goofy, and energetic toddler son (and his best friend, our giant St. Bernard named Camille). My primary area of interest is how psychosocial factors as well as access to care play a role in determining behaviors and outcomes. I tend to draw upon a strength-based yet eclectic style when working with participants.
Fun Fact(s): I am a super-taster, have worked as a magician’s assistant, and got bit by a monkey in college!
